Product Description

When Professor William Waterman Sherman leaves San Francisco in a hot-air balloon, he intends to fly across the Pacific Ocean. Instead, through a twist of fate, he lands on Krakatoa, a legendary island of unimaginable wealth, eccentric inhabitants, and fantastic balloon inventions. Once Professor Sherman leans the secrets of Krakatoa, he must remain there forever--unless he can find a means of escape. Recommended for ages 8 to 12. The 1948 Newbery Medal winner.

Publisher's Description

Professor William Waterman Sherman just wants to be alone. So he decides to take a year off and spend it crossing the Pacific Ocean in a hot-air balloon the likes of which no one has ever seen. But when he is found after just three weeks floating in the Atlantic among the wreckage of twenty hot-air balloons, naturally, the world is eager to know what happened. How did he end up with so many balloons . . . and in the wrong ocean?

Editorial Reviews

An absurd and fantastic tale. . . . Truth and fiction are cleverly mingled. (School Library Journal)
